Tradescantia geniculata 'Bolivian'




Tradescantia geniculata 'Bolivian'

The Bolivian tradescantia has smaller, more rounded leaves than its relatives, but shares their inclination to trail down or across long surfaces, making this a beautiful plant for a hanging basket. If hanging from above, you will see its resemblance to its family in the lovely purple underside of its leaves. Tradescantia like humidity, so place this plant in a humid spot in your home like a kitchen or bathroom, or make sure to mist the leaves regularly. 


Light: Medium

Water: Frequent

Ease: Easy Breezy

Pet Friendly: No

Care: If your Tradescantia is getting leggy (leaves closest to the root ball are falling off) you can trim back the edges of the stems to encourage a fuller appearance.
